Mail Aliases problems for multiple domains

Hi guys,

I have a Slackware 9.1 machine setup to handle mail and web hosting. I am having a bit of a problem with my mail aliases though.
My server is running POPa3d and Sendmail (havent gotten around to migrating to exim yet)

I have for instance:


in my /etc/mail/aliases file.
After adding the aliases I ran "newaliases" like a good little root and I was told the following:

/etc/mail/aliases: line ??: Warning: duplicate alias name sales
/etc/mail/aliases: line ??: Warning: duplicate alias name info

Any one know what I am doing wrong?

looks like you need something like this:



the entries on the left of the colon are the 'real' login for the email addresses on the right.

is that what you want to do?
